Chapter 4: Unlocking Keys to Your Inner Clarity and Unique Voice
by Debra Eklove

The 'if only' syndrome can be debilitating, and getting over that is a journey to understanding that there are no mistakes. Many tools are needed and the choices we make are there to gather them, so you have them when needed. Years ago Debra worked at a phosphates plant in the middle of the desert. Traveling there, early in the morning, she would see the road she traveled with seven or eight peaks, each pointing in different directions. It was in the valleys that these peaks connected. That is an image, a metaphor, for life. Today she sees how many of the twists and turns in her life have taken her from valleys to the peak of joy. As you read Debra’s story, chances are you will see these connections in your life too.

Chapter 8: Radical Awakening to Your True Self
by Catherine Allon

What can be more important than raising the Earth’s vibrational energies in today’s world for the highest good and upliftment of everyone? Catherine describes how her uncommon contribution evolved from her life's challenges, including being a Hungarian refugee at age 9, and the wisdom it brought her. Now an awakened Kundalini yoga teacher and a spiritual psychotherapist, she shares how to raise your vibration. “It can be as simple as a smile, staying optimistic when you’re having a bad day, or being compassionate and kind to those who least expect or deserve it. All of these encouraging feelings add up! They become good vibes, just as random acts of kindness make the giver and receiver feel better. The higher your vibration, the happier you are, and the more you can share your love, joy, and good nature with others.
